Not that I'm aware of
Good question but I don't think I qualify as a independent contractor. I don't get minimum wage or paid leave either.
Paul S. Henderson, RE...
Never heard of that in Texas.
Heck no, not in IL.
Not sure about CA. I think not. An agent passed out at open house just north of you. The head surgeries costs her almost 6 figures. We are raising money to help her to heal... I know she has no workman comp.
San Jose, CA
It depends on the Brokerage and how they are set up. I am not up to the latest laws on this, when we had our own firm, we did not buy Workman's Comp. A
Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® - nop! We are independent contractors here in MA.
I don't think so.
No..I'm an independent contractor.
Not normally as you are a independent contractor
As Independent Contractors we don't benefit from Workman's Comp from the firm that hangs our license, because we are not employees.
Wouldn't that make you an employee?
I don't believe we do as independent contractors.
Los Angeles, CA
Never had it when I worked for other brokers.
Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® I believe workman's comp only applies to salaried employees.
Nope, not an employee.
In NH we do not need to carry it f agents that work under us are true independent contractors, that means no salary and no forced work hours.
Hi Hella - Here, workman's comp is available to employees, but not independent contractors.
Not in Cali.
Never had Workman's comp from any broker I worked for.
I have not reviewed the legislation in my jurisdiction on this matter.
Hello Hella, I need to see what other say about this
No, that is only for employees in Texas and even that is not compulsory.
Real estate agents are exempt from that here, but it is tough to have any other quasi employees without paying WC insurance and lots of other requiremtns.
I dont mess around with the government, I pay all the fees and taxes on all of my people.
I don't and never have.
I have to check into that one
